Am I dreaming?
My Oak Tree has snow again.
I've been collecting a sequence of pictures on how this tree
looses it's leaves in the early spring and forms buds during the same time,
to be posted at a later date.
I find this process so unusual, unlike most deciduous trees,
but fascinating to watch the new growth.
I've been thinking about changing my winter template
to something more springy.
But now I know why.
After last weeks warm blast of air,
I thought winter was over.
I had spent the days outside,
cleaning the yard, pruning the shrubs,
dreaming of new plants and flowers,
planning for my vegetable garden,
having coffee breaks outside....
And here I am.
Another cold front has hit us, how long who knows.
The north east is blowing.
Maybe it's just a good day to make some home-made bread,
a bowl of soup and work on some scrap-booking.
I love snowy days...
But I think we're due for a change.
Maybe they will close down the schools and my
Teacher friends will stop by to play in the snow again.
